Join Busboys and Poets as they celebrate the poetic legacy of hip-hop with a special performance and discussion with DC’s own Asheru. This event, to be held at the 14th & W St. Busboys and Poets on April 1st at 6pm as a part of the Kennedy Center “One Mic” Festival, will showcase the connection between hip-hop MC’s and the poets from the American writing tradition, specifically Langston Hughes and others from the Harlem Renaissance. Busboys and Poets as well as the Kennedy Center strive to create a nurturing environment for rappers/writers to learn more about and sharpen their craft. This event will be hosted by Busboys and Poet’s Director of Poetry Events (D.o.P.E.), Bomani Armah and feature a performance/presentation/chat with hip-hop artist and educator Asheru. This event will feature an online competition to find 4 rappers/writers (younger than 22) to perform a song at the event. The winners of the competition will receive 2 hours of studio time at Urban Intalek Studios and highlighted on DCplace.com. For more information please contact poetry@busboysandpoets.com
